Whether fishing, spear fishing, free diving, scuba diving, body surfing, or board surfing, Terry Cross has been on or in the water most of his life. He worked two seasons on the Cat as a commercial abalone diver and helped put himself through nursing school teaching basic scuba as a NAUI/PADI instructor. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in biology. After attending his first Mass on a dare, he wound up leading the church choir where he met his wife of twenty-six years. He and Judy Ann still lead singing at Mass on Sundays, and on Saturdays Terry and his custom kneeboard are riding the waves. His hobbies are writing music and bird watching. Fisher of Men is Terry’s first novel. It drinks deeply from his real-life experiences and was written to share his thanksgiving for having lived them.
